  1. gdhoyte crimes will never stop until and unless you tell your rulers to work with the government on guyanese security and not wait until u will see if u get into power..

  2. Well said,it has to stop and the sad part of this is so many ppl walking around with license 9m, but the truth is many of them just have the guns as another thing to brag about.

  3. This MADNESS has to stop, it is time the GPF start doing road blocks, stop and search also appoint the tactical unit to carry out community or house searches with out warning. So That this kind or madness can be halted. Guyana has too small of a population for this amount of shootings killings and robberies. I know that the Police Force can handle this. first let’s get the guns off the streets by way of heavy fines and seizure of assets of anyone found importing, carrying, hoarding or trafficking in guns and ammunitions.
